Hackers free iTunes from copyright protections

By Derek Sooman on March 19, 2005, 2:01 PM
Computer hackers have released software that lets people access Apple Computer's online music store and buy music tracks that are devoid of any copyright protections. This software is known as PyMusique, and lets people purchase songs from Apple's iTunes music store for the standard price of 99 cents, but also lets customers save those tracks on their computers before they are protected by digital rights management software, which prevents widespread file copying.

I am sure that Apple wants to prevent this from happening, but how would they do it?
